Toledo is a beautiful place to visit. The apartment sleeps four, however it is best suited for a couple. The bed was very comfortable, but the pull out couch bed was horrible to sleep on. The main reason we chose this apartment was due to its location in the old Jewish quarters and having access to the roof to enjoy the lights and sights; however, upon arriving the owners informed us that the roof was damaged and we would not be able to access the roof. (You are able to view the roof from the stairwell and the patio was in perfect condition with no evidence of damage or any repairs being performed). Keep in mind: you will not have access to the roof top. You should also be aware that the closest parking is a 20 minute hike up a steep, cobblestone incline. (I'd recommend taking a taxi from your parking lot).
Amelia is the perfect host. She picked us up from the train station and also dropped us off there when it was time for us to leave. The apartment is on ground level and in a quiet part of old Toledo. There was plenty of hot water for showering, the kitchen was well organized (full sized refrigerator), the bed was comfortable, and the wifi was reliable (unlike many places in Spain). There is also a terrace on the top floor with good views (it's shared but we always had it to ourselves). All sites are easily accessible from the apartment; just make sure you have a map!
Amelia also sent us a list of good but inexpensive restaurants close by. On her recommendation, we had the carcamusa - a rich and delicious stew which is a specialty of Toledo. As it was a Sunday, fewer restaurants were open so we chose La Abadia on Plaza San Nicolas. The kitchen did not open until 9pm so we had a drink while we waited. The dining area is very small so there was quite a rush to get a table when they were ready for business.
If I ever return to Toledo, this apartment is where you will find me.
Best vacation rental so far. Not only the location was excellent but the very sweet and warm Amelia made our stay at Toledo more than just perfecto. Amelia not only provided us with the useful information as to where to go and where to eat, but also pick up and drop off! Kudos to Amelia!
excellent location in the old Jewish quarter, calm and peaceful, cosy and atmospheric, with all appliances available, helpful owner
